Torrent description

This torrent was uploaded from www.TheBox.bz (signup is open and free) - the home of all British TV

In the late 80's and early 90's my mum took part in several gameshows, usually the daytime ones.Some she did better than others but as she said you got fed, entertained and sometimes a night in a nice hotel, so any winnings were a bonus. I've already uploaded a couple of episodes of Lucky Ladders.
Anyway after promising mum that I would transfer her shows onto DVD I will also upload them here.As a bonus she dated this edition on the tape!


Four Square 14 September 1989
Host John Sachs

Broadcast BBC1, 3 May 1988 - 31 October 1991 (109 programmes)

Synopsis

Headline: Two players tried to win by scoring as many points as possible.

The first round was Pair the Squares, i.e. the old pelmanism game. There was a 6 x 6 grid of squares with symbols behind them. A contestant picked four of them. If any matched they turned their colour and they could choose two more. If none matched then their opponent got a go. It was 2 points for a match but a bonus 4 points if they could get four squares of their colour so they themselves formed a square. Four Square, see? This would continue for a while.

Pick a picture

Round two was the Picture question round. Again, contestants took it in turns to pick single squares and behind each one was a picture and a question. If they got it correct they earn points and the square turns their colour. If they get it wrong then their opponents get the square. Just to add some extra spice, seven squares were 'Gremlins', giant smiley faces (maybe the producer was on something). These squares would automatically turn their opponents colour.

The Maze (no, not crystal)

After this was The Maze: Each contestant was given 60 seconds in order to negotiate it. They were represented as a moving arrow. There were junction points during the Maze and they were reached every five seconds. John would read out a statement and the contestant would hit a 'True' or 'False' button in front of them. If they were correct then their little arrow went the right way and if they got it wrong it would go up a dead end. This round is noticeable for the excellent music that went with it during the game and it was worth watching the programme for this alone.

The final round would be a return to the "Pair the Squares" board and was played until the end of the show.

Four Square was an affable little show which brighten up many a dull lunchtime, arguably BBC Elstree in its golden age.

Quality is surprisingly good for a VHS rip of this age.
